Since I have been out of college, New Years Eve isn’t really anything I have had a lot to do with. Usually, I am in bed by 9:00 and by the the time midnight comes around, I am deep in my REM sleep. Last year; however, we did something new. Family Game Night.
My husband, my kids, and myself got together with some of our friends and their kids and had a great time. We all played Pictionary and other family friendly games. When the clock neared midnight, the kids all went outside for some fun with sparklers and other kid appropriate fireworks.
It was such a fun night. Yes, there was champagne, but there was apple cider too. Call us dorks if you wish, but I much prefer a night spent with family and friends playing games than my head in a toilet.
Happy New Year to you and yours!
